SCOPE Concept, Photography Series.
FOR Languages of the World. World of Languages. 

The photo series is part of the book "Weltsprachen–Sprachwelten", engl. "Languages of the World–World of Languages", which is nominated for the European Design Award 2019. The photos were printed on Munken Lynx.

The photo series aims to embody the language of the world. With the help of a non-newtonian fluid, which was formed through acoustic sonication in different frequency ranges, temporary and moving sculptures were created.

The frequency ranges were determined by the average male and female pitches in the respective language. Each picture therefore shows individual forms depending on the selected language.

The result is a series of photographs showing polymorphic entities which endlessly reshape themselves and visualize language in its adaptability.
